Sound: Alex Gaskarth's voice was all right, but I feel that he could have gone out of his comfort range of singing. He kept a pretty mid-range voice throughout the set, even though he is able to take higher notes. If he would have done that, it would have added some variation to the songs. But he did a good job otherwise. The sound quality was great. It might have been better, but I didn't notice any drawbacks in particular.

Perfomance: Their performance was really awesome. Alex and Jack (lead guitarist) really made the show. They interacted with the audience, said things between songs that were hilarious and they really got the audience pumped up through all 25 songs. They were full of energy which go hand-in-hand with their music and it spread to us in the audience. They played their songs flawless and their stage presence was really great. Although the stage didn't really have any decorations except for the backdrop and the band's instruments, it didn't feel like something was missing. The lightning were good but nothing extraordinary.

Overall Impression: The gig was in Sweden, Stockholm, Fryshuset, 18/2-2014. The opening band were Blitz Kids, an alternative rock band from England. Their music was great, but they didn't get the audience going so much. But when All Time Low entered the stage, the audience went crazy. The best thing about the gig was that Alex and Jack were so entertaining even between the songs. When the band weren't blasting through one of their song, it was like a comedy show between they two.
The most unforgettable thing that happened during the show was when a friend of mine were sitting on my shoulders. Alex noticed her and threw a pick at her which hit her right in the forehead! We stood in the audience a bit away from the stage, but he still managed to get such a perfect throw. That was pretty awesome. My friend got really happy and amazed, both because Alex noticed her and because the throw. The ticket cost 275 sek (about 30 eur or 42 usd) and it was definitely worth it if you like All Time Low. It was also a very long gig for the money. And yes, when they come to Sweden again, I will go to their gig. // 9
